    I'm not sure how or if I can do this, so if anyone knows -- it would be very appreciated!

    I've got a print server running Windows 2000 Server. I have an identical box that I have loaded with 2003 Server.

    What I want do to is transfer all the printers and their respective settings from the 2000 box to the 2003 box. It this possible? I'm talking about all the printer names, their share names, their printing preferences -- the whole shebang. [Note: There are over 40 printers and each has their own unique setup, so it would be very tedious and impractical to add each printer one-by-one on the new box.]

    Thanks!!!

    Found it! Cracked my Server 2003 book open :) There's a utility called Print Migrator that saves all the information and lets you migrate to 2003 server.

    Thanks for the attempt!
